Norco Factory Racing – EWS round 1 Rotorua

The team take on the mud of New Zealand

Tricky conditions but smiles all round.

Press stuff:

Norco Factory Racings Sam Blenkinsop and Joe Smith take on the Whakarewarewa Forest and the seven stages of the first Enduro World Series.
Whilst Joe seemed to get off with a good start, missing the rain on stage one and two and taking third on the first stage, he held tight for a solid 18th place finish. He finished, 3, 25, 24, 25, 21, 28, 44.
Sam got hit with all the weather as his start times where later, a big mistake on stage one leaving him right back in 53rd but he battled on back to finish 16th! He finished 53, 14, 33, 15, 19, 17, 26.
A tough day none the less, but no mechanicals and grit got the boys through with two top 20 finishes, top work!
